    Historical Data from CQG or Forex.com

    I am trying to backtest a strategy on EURUSD but the built-in data in the Strategy Analyzer in NT8 only goes back to October 2008. How can I get data going back before then? Is it available to download? Thanks

    Hello prescottbph,
    Thanks for your post.

    CQG provides the most out of these two. NinjaTrader servers generally house the following data availability per data type:
    • Tick data: deleted after 360 days
    • Minute data: virtually never deleted, goes back to 2006
    • Daily data: virtually never deleted, goes back to 2009
    • Market replay data: deleted after 360 days
    • CFD data goes back to 9/9/2013

      Thanks Josh. How do I backtest on that minute data going back to 2006? I've tried selecting strategy analyzer and setting the period of time to 2006. It returns no data or trades for that period when other years work back to end of 2008. Thanks

        prescottbph, Upon further investigation it appears that Forex data on our servers only goes back to November 2008. To view anything further back you will need to contact a third party.

        Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
